NEKOOSA CREDIT UNION
On August 19, 1935 the Nekoosa Credit Union was chartered, serving the employees of the Nekoosa-Edwards Paper Company and their immediate families. The original office space that housed the operation of the credit union was provided by the Nekoosa-Edwards Paper Company.
As the credit union evolved, expansions to the original charter were granted to include persons residing or employed in Wood, Adams, and Juneau Counties.
In 1968, the credit union acquired a property located at 115 Prospect Avenue, converting a then gas station to office space, which was utilized until 1982, when our present facility was erected. In 1999, the present facility was expanded by approximately 1,200 square feet of office space and a detached two-lane drive thru facility for the added convenience of our members.
Why choose a credit union?
A credit union is a member-owned, non-profit cooperative financial institution formed to permit those in the field of membership, specified in its charter, to pool their savings, lend them to one another and own the organization where they save, borrow, and obtain related financial services. Members are united by a common bond and democratically operate the credit union under state and federal regulation.
